, john mccain. [applause] >> thank you, chuck, and thank all of you, and i want to obviously express my deep appreciation to all of my seven colleagues. it is well known in the senate that i am not the easiest guy to get along with. but i must say they put up with my tantrums and they put up with a lot, and i want to say thank you to all of you for really doing something that america deserves. to paraphrase churchill, this is not the end of the process, but the end of the beginning. there is a long and difficult road ahead. committee hearings, markups, open amendments will be offered. some will be intended to improve it, some will be offered in hope of killing it. none of us expect the bill to be identical with the one we introduced today, but we are all united in our determination that this, at the end of the day, remains a fair, comprehensive, and practical solution to a difficult problem that most americans can support and that stands a good chance of passing the house and being signed into law by the president. the legislation is not perfect. most are provisions that if not all sena
for senator mccain. you drafted a couple pieces of legislation for what congressional session? guest: i helped draft the mccain-kennedy proposal in 2006, which passed the senate, and not a house. i held with what is being called the kennedy-kyl proposal that was in 2007 while mccain was getting ready for his presidential bid. took no -- took the negotiations over. they're based on a fundamental draft was put together in 2005- 2006 known as mccain-kennedy which went through the committee process and became hodgepodge on the floor. biggest sticking point during those negotiations? guest: that is a good question. i would say the temporary worker program was definitely the point in 2007 where we really hit a wall. if you look back at the floor debate, there was a crucial amendment that sunset did the temporary worker program after five years. once that passed by one vote, the whole process teleport. aboutteresting part drafting immigration legislation, involves a lot of labor law. you have a whole different set of staffers that to come in and help out with that. it's very complicated. luckily, i h

[ applause ] this was kind of interesting. a u.s. intelligence agency has put together a psychological profile of kim jong- un, and they say's he is a narcissist. he is obsessed with hollywood, obsessed with plastic surgery and obsessed with the nba. a condition we -- well, we know that in this country as kardashianism. that's kardashianism. that is the same basic -- [ applause ] well, if you flew out here, you probably know this already. because of the whole sequester thing, the faa has imposed furloughs on air traffic controllers, their layoffs. and of course, a lot of passengers feel uneasy about taking off and landing knowing there's nobody in the control tower sleeping.
of chemical weapons, and for that we turn to senator john mccain of arizona who is in arizona this morning. senator, welcome. >> thank you, david. >> as you know the white house said this week after this intelligence estimate came out about the use of chemical weapons that the case that syria actually did that is not airtight. what do you say? >> well, it may not be airtight. the israelis and the british are far more affirmative in their assessment of it. but, david, we should not be -- our actions should not be dictated by whether bashar al assad used these chemical weapons or not. first of all, sooner or later he most likely would in order to maintain his hold on power. but what has happened here is the president drew a red line about chemical weapons thereby giving a green light to bashar al assad to do anything short of that including scud missiles and helicopter gun ships and air strikes and mass executions and atrocities that are on a scale that we have not seen in a long, long time. >> so the president says that this is a red line if confirmed, and he said back in august it would ch

coalition there. >> speaking of libya, senator mccain was critical of the administration's decisions regarding the events playing out and already, chuck, we've heard from senator mccain regarding this news and chemical weapons being used by syria. let me play what senator mccain said. >> the president of the united states said if assad used chemical weapons, it would be a game changer. that it would cross a red line. i think it is pretty obvious that red line has been crossed. >> so there you have it. some might say the usual suspect in these international story lines if you will. but senator mccain already on record criticizing in some ways. >> the other person usually the ally in the senate, lindsey graham has been quoted as saying he is not suggesting the u.s. should act unilaterally. so there isn't, there is certainly a movement on capitol hill that something has to be done. there's not unanimity on what do you do. there's a lot of hesitance. not just the obama administration and the white house. also among republican hawks about getting the u.s. military involved in a unilateral
, this isn't the motivation for senator mccain. this is the last straw for senator mccain. he believes and others believe that we should have been involved long ago. not because of chemical weapons, but because million of angry refugees are being created in that part of the world. that's dangerous. >> what about the opposition? you still have that concern about for example, senator john mccain wanting to then opposition and we still like with libya, we don't know who all of the players are there. >> there is a very tragic irony that is unfolding here. over the past two years, where we were in the beginning when this was a peaceful nonviolent uprising against the regime. there was an inaction because people didn't want to internationalize the conflict or regionalize the conflict. they were sitting on the sidelines saying we don't want to get involved in a domestic syrian affair. here we are two years later. it is spilled over with the refugees. armies coming from hezbollah fighters. there is an irony that now we are being forced into action when two years ago, it would have been a lot e
about the power of corporations when he struck down the mccain fine gold campaign finance laws. mccain-feingold campaign finance laws. hagan, youre kay believe people have the right to marry, even though her voters do not. hagan is from the only battleground state president obama lost in the last election. in the last election, 51% of voters opposed gay marriage. it really is a bold decision on her part. some of these people jumping on the bandwagon right now were just reelected. they have six years. she will be a heroine to those in the same sex marriage movement. they can be a source of great campaign funds, but i think it is a risky political strategy. >> and most are democrats, although rob portman, because his son is gay, has changed his opinion. liza mikulski says her views are evolving. hashe president himself said his views evolved. i would not be so ironic using the word when applying it to republicans. aboute thing i would say the supreme court is i hope they learned the lessons of roe versus wade. ruth later ginsberg said that that decision stymied -- ruth bair ginsberg said

for the justice system to, quote, do its job. meanwhile, senators john mccain and lindsey graham say the injured suspect is not, not entitled to his miranda rights. they want dzhokhar tsarnaev to be treated as an enemy combatant. and the transit police officer injured in a shootout with the suspects remains in critical condition. don't forget about this hero. officer richard donahue being treated for a single gunshot wound. meanwhile, authorities are still looking at another disaster further south, way further south, trying to get to the bottom of what caused that blast at the fertilizer plant in west, texas. fox'sdom nick is there with the -- dominic is there with 14 dead. >> 200 injured. we understand from the authorities that 14 bodies have been recovered. they do not expect that number to rise much, if at all. 13 critically ill in hospital. it's unclear now on day three after the disaster how many of those will pull through. they think most of them actually will. the bodies of those that have been recovered from the site here in west have been taken to dallas for forensics. those that were m
that and supported the bill, including john mccain and pat toomey. i think it is understandable. it is a matter of intensity. if you are pro-gun, that is how you vote and that is how the democrat side. that is why they ended up going the way they did. >> political consequences. >> not clear at this point. i will say this, i think there will be second-guessing on the democrats' strategy. harry reid appears to go to an early vote. there was never an attempt to make this a real filibuster to challenge. once the 13 people said they were going to filibuster, ackground checks, that was challenge. ok, let's go to the mattresses. 60 days, 60 nights like we did on civil rights and make them stand up and defend that position. instead of allowing it to .ecome a pressure thing the sponsors said if the nra had not scored this and said this is what they're going to make their graydon, 15 senators would have voted differently. i do not know if he is right. . i think that tells you something. he said iforning this vote had taken place in january instead of april, it would have been a different story. because
